The naval museum has a number of non-naval aircraft and across different eras as well. The last time I was there they had an ME-262 and Japanese Zero along with a French Nieuport and a Fokker DVIII amongst others. It's on NAS Pensacola but they'll let you in if you show them ID and sign in.

I've never been there but would like to go sometime. Not far from where I live, there's the Lone Star flight museum at the Galveston airport. It's not near as big but has various WW II aircraft including still-flying B-17, B-25, P-47 , and SBD Dauntless. According to the website, they offer rides on the B-17, B-25, and AT6 Texan trainer.

They sound really cool too- the staccato exhaust of the radial engine aircraft, and the P-51 that sounds like a V-12 Jag on steroids-

They say pictures tell a thousand words, well here’s a few thousand to say, surprise surprise, I’m a sci-fi and Icehouse fan, and perhaps fond of redheads-
